I have a Roomba 530, I have had it for 2 weeks and really loved it. I have followed all the cleaning instructions etc.. Then the Roomba wanted it’s brushes cleaning “please clean Roombas brushes” So thinking that something was stuck I removed and cleaned the brushes, (yellow tabs on and in place by the way)
was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I
bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn’t
last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so
it’s ready when you need it, and that’s nice but I feel that leaving it
charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm
to the touch. These battery’s should last at least 5

If your Roomba is contained by the virtual walls, then you can assume the IR sensor on your Roomba us good….you should test that though. Then you might have to replace the “home base” which could have a bad IR transponder . New ones can be found for reasonable price at www.RoboticVacParts.com or you could order straight from iRobot for twice the price.
If the Roomba is not contained by the virtual walls, then the IR sensor on the Roomba is likely bad and you’ll need to change the bumper on your Roomba. Again ….parts are available through ebay, or www.RoboticVacParts.com. Follow this link if you need it.
. \342\200\242 With the robot on its back, push the wheels up and down several times to make sure nothing is stuck. Turn the wheels by hand to see if they both have the same amount of resistance.
. \342\200\242 Clean the wheel assembly out with compressed air and/or a vacuum

.2. Battery charging is as much an art as a science. Just slapping any old power supply on a battery pack to charge it is essentially technical sue-ee-side.
.Yes, the car battery folks make it look easy; but many, many millions of dollars and development hours went into that simple-looking technology just for that reason: to make it look easy.
.You may have damaged the batteries and probably damaged the circuit board as well. There is a reason that companies spend millions in development. Unless you have a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, you should stick to factory-designed and -authorised parts.
.9 beeps suggest a bumper fault
.You are probably facing a bumper sensor issue.
Try to clean the bumper first and if this goes on, either call iRobot service, or
take a look at this page for the step by step 9 beep fix.
.The roomba unit carries a one year manufacturers warranty, so you should be able to bring it into your local Best Buy™ store and have them try to repair it.
.I hope this helps!
